High pressure is trying to build this week with only partial success. So a bit of a mixed bag. Monday will be cloudy with a few scattered outbreaks of light rain. Dry on Tuesday with a few sunny spells coming through. Mostly cloudy but dry on Wednesday. Scattered outbreaks of rain return on Thursday. On Friday there will be some nice warm spells of sunshine before rain edges in from the west. Saturday will begin wet with some more outbreaks of rain. This is expected to ease off later in the afternoon. Cloudy on Sunday but holding largely dry. Some rain early next week then drier as another ridge of high pressure tries to take hold.
